After learning that he will not be amongst the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame names to be featured on the event's televised special on USA, Mick Foley posted the following on Twitter and Facebook:
SOMEONE NEEDS SOME CHEERING UP! Yeah, that someone is me. Looks like there is at least the possibility that my WWE HOF speech will not be aired on television – in favor of Donald Trump’s speech. hopefully, it’s just a rumor. If not, it does feel like a slap in the face, but, hey – it’s not my company and not my decision to make. I’ll just do the best I can, and try to find the guts, the pride and the testicular fortitude to deliver the best speech possible. I had some good stuff in my head a few days ago, but in light of that figurative slap to the Foley face, I may just get up there on stage and speak from the heart. Things just might get interesting!
In the meantime, I’ve got plenty of cool things going on to take my mind off this potential Trump debacle. You can check out my upcoming spoken-word/comedy dates on my website, and it’s my intention to write a pretty extensive blog, thanking just about everyone I can think of for all the help I’ve received during the course of my career. I certainly didn’t get to the WWE Hall of Fame in Madison Square Garden (even if it may be a DVD extra) without plenty of help.
